ClassNK updates PrimeShip-HULL

ClassNK has released the latest version of its design support software PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR), with version 4.0.0 having been developed in response to the latest rule amendments to the IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers (CSR BC & OT).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The changes aim to shorten calculation times in the prescriptive calculation software and offer a new function to preview reports in the direct strength assessment software.

The prescriptive calculation software now has improved data linkage functions with the 3D-CAD software NAPA Steel, to allow 3D model data to be imported into the initial design function as well as data modified in the full ship design function to be imported back to NAPA Steel.

The new rule amendments to CSR BC & OT are applicable to ships for which a construction contract has been agreed on or after 1 July 2017.{/mprestriction}
